I dont know why but I with the latest patch I can see following text when I boot my computer:
Fn: diskn

Then I press enter and it jumps right to the boot menu.

I see that on one of my systems, too, but not all. I just assumed it was something that the BIOS was doing before loading the NetBSD boot code, asking me to (for example) 'press F1 to boot disk1'.

Now that you've reported the same message, I'm not so sure.

BTW, my machine is an ASUS M2N-E motherboard with quad-core AMD.
